ok it sounded like you were saying flat out, "ignore AK", not "do WP/CM until you have some gear then do AK" and yes you got me; I completely forgot about the fresh 50 thing shortly after that.
Agree with all your points, although it is totally possible to do AK with not much more than AF and GC weapon. Its just far from ideal. If anything, it will be ilvl55 requirement /shrug. I did it with AF/DL accessories and GC weapon, and it was pretty brutal.
No I just meant don't queue for it right off the bat. I'll edit my post to clarify. I agree that AK can be done in full AF and GC since that's what I used on my first clear (minus the GC weapon because...well...you had to run AK first before obtaining it). I had really
nice people who were patient and explained the fights, though.
I wouldn't recommend it to a fresh 50 given the current environment. "WHAT? NO RELIC?! I'M OUTTA HERE." -A majority of AK DFs I've been in Edited, Oct 1st 2013 12:43pm by HitomeOfBismarck
I was in a titan pug yesterday early on and the tank and a dps were in the same fc and parsing everyone up until the end of the heart phase. I was told that with my garuda weapon I was dealing more damage than relics. The rotation is definitely working. I dont believe that a relic makes you a good player.
On a lighter note, my awesome FC ZAM consisting of Duma, Jy, Autumn, Amorok, Don (think Don was in there, maybe not) and several other folks who at this time I thank but can't recall their names got me throguh my first titan, ironically while I was on my back, lol. This was our 5th or 6th try I think, at that point I was way past my gaming quota so I was playing with my volume down watching "This is 40" on the other tv with my wife while my 4 year old was bouncing around throwing legos at my head. Somehow through all that I did not get distracted. The kid even landed on the remote to the TV in one of her bounce-fests and turned it completely off. I had a crap my pants moment, grabbed the remote, turned it back on to see that I was still alive. I was not mad, but dang kid, really? Anyway through all of that I was doing well, generally the last person up until tank died and titan walked over to the squishy black mage and smashed me across the face. Did well those runs. But we lost. Then, we get to the winning run.
It starts. I'm thinking that it will be like the last one. I'm doing fantastic all the way through heart, do not get hit, kicking ****, all the way up until I get stuck in the second gaol in the heart phase. Then, they dont break me out in time and the big one hits. Boom, 3400 hp to 0 like that. Then, strangely enough, everybody meshes together. Dodging everything, no deaths, perfect execution, whm awesome as always, sch doing great, everyone kicking ****. No rez because they know its a waste of time since raising off of titan is harder than crab fishing in January. Then the other blm, who really did well to get to that point since he was pretty undergeared and had 2900 hp, finally bites it. Still they keep going. They got all the way down to the end, got the lb3. I'm thinking, ok, they are gonna whm lb3 rez soon to pick me up. But a dd says, "I can kill it!", and gives it a go. Drops him from ~4% to 1%. I'm thinking oh, no, but they are holding it together. Then, as I am laying dead on the floor for 3/4 of the match, with the volume down watching a movie with my wife, and my kid still throwing crap at my head, I finally beat titan.
